A while ago, I learned about this neat trick from Harry.

You can write your resume in Markdown and convert them to PDF using Pandoc!

Since Markdown is plain text, you can version control it with git and create branches for whatever company you’re applying to. You can even share the repository with someone you trust, and they can do review the commits on GitHub.

Pandoc uses Latex to render the PDF, so they look very “textbook formal”.

All you have to do is:

pandoc resume.md -s -o resume.pdf


Try it out!

You can do this for all sorts of documents, not just resumes.

MTG Conspiracy 2

I came in second at a Friday Night Magic event recently.

We were drafting the new Conspiracy set, and I created a neat Black/White deck that revolved around being the Monarch.

Queen Marchesa’s minions really helped me out in some tight situations.

This was the most fun set I’ve played with since Magic Origins. I hope there’s more Conspiracy sets in the future.
